Abstract

This paper focuses on architectural spatial design for virtual tridimensional learning environments through the lens of a case study. The work describes the design methodology of a flexible and interactive set of virtual constructions where the architecture itself acts as a dynamic interface whose spaces adapt to the activities that avatars carry out in their interior, sometimes interacting with them. This approach considers the multiple innovative parameters that have to be taken into account in the process of cyberarchitectural design.
